Zucchini, bacon and tomato pasta

September 16, 2010

A quick easy mid-week meal that even the children eat! The sauce goes with any pasta – last night we tried it with ricotta ravioli.

Serves 2


Olive oil
1 red onion, chopped
3-4 rashers bacon, chopped finely
1 large zucchini, grated
1 large handful semi-dried tomatoes, chopped
250-300g spaghetti (approx)
Salt and pepper
Parmesan, grated

Boil water for pasta. Saute onion and bacon for 5 minutes over medium heat until bacon starts to colour. Add grated zucchini and stir through for 2-3 minutes until softened. Add semi-dried tomatoes and turn down heat. Cook pasta and drain. Add pasta to sauce pan, drizzle with olive oil and stir sauce through. Season to taste. Serve with grated Parmesan.
